Peter Hongaard Anderson speaks with ecancer at EAPM 2017.

He discusses the balance of costs and medicines across healthcare systems, stating that around 5% of the population uses around 60% of overall healthcare costs, much of this can be addressed through combatting lifestyle diseases.

It is important to recognise that if people are educated on how their data can be used to improve their lives, they are much more willing to share it.
